Queries and Controversies

Journal of Biblical Counseling 15:1

In this article, Alan Medinger answers the question “Is masturbation always a sin?” Medinger argues that masturbation is not always wrong, but lust is. He maintains that shifting our focus from sinful masturbation to sinful lust will not only lead us to more proper confessions…but may provide great help in moving us along towards sexual obedience. Medinger concludes with a discussion of the stages of temptation and sin, where the final stage is actual acted out sin.
